Yes, they were talking about this over on https://goodereader.com/blog/onyx-bo...september-21st

Here is what someone said: "Why do companies pretend this is secret. It's on the fcc website to see. The max 4 (max limit?) Is coming out, slightly newer cpu, bluetooth 5. Also either a color mac orMcolor nova 2, both of which are also on the fcc website."

I don't know what the "fcc website" is.

Anyway, I'm still using an m92. I really need a Max 4 or a Max 3 PRO.

The m92 is too old now.

If it's just a front light, and cpu/bluetooth bump I won't regret buying my Max 3 in the recent sale. I prefer using external lights anyway.

Real improvements for me would be:
- Higher PPI screen
- Physical page turn buttons (I use a bluetooth remote, but sometimes on-device is more convenient)
- Lighter

Yeah, me too. I would have loved the higher PPI. Imagine have A4 size eInk at 300ppi.

And those page turn buttons that used to be on the Kindle 4. They were great. I miss those buttons.

I'll probably get it because I went back to Uni, and my m92 is driving me cray-zee. It works, but ... you know.

Hi rowe,
that sparked my interest: which bluetooth remote do you use and would you recommend it?
cheers, Kai

I purchased a Dasung Paperlike e-ink 13.3" monitor last year. Pricey, but good investment for my eyes. It has a front light and interestingly, I find myself not using it ... where to me, having lightbulb-lamps close to the monitor provides more clarity/contrast of what's on the screen. On one side, I have a multi-bulbed 100w-CFL lamp & the other side, I have a small mini-bulb halogen lamp. The different kinds of "light" illuminate the screen differently, which IMO, gives good readability.

For some reason the direct links don't show up.
The process to see the docs is as follows for those that do not know how to use the FCC to search for devices...

1-Proceed to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) website
( https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/repor...ericSearch.cfm )

2-Enter XR3 in the Grantee Code field. This is Onyx's number. (If you are looking for another company and or don't know their grantee code, then enter the company's name in the "Applicant Name" field.) Then click the search button.

3-Some companies have a lot of entries, so back at the search screen, one may want to enter a date range to narrow down the results.

The results may or may not come back with a FCC ID that is easily describing the device, but in this case there is an entry of XR3-MAXLUMI, click on the detail or summary links for to see the documents.

Also note, some companies will add a notice to restrict showing off the images or docs until a pre-determined date and thus will not show up until after that date.

Hope this helps.


As for myself, I am interested in the Max for its size. The Max Lumi will probably have color if the fcc docs are any indication. Seems Boox gave the model numbers of "Max Lumi, Max Lumi Lite,Max Lumi Pro, Max Lumi Plus ,Max Lumi Color, Max New, New Max, Max4". Besides the Max/Max Lumi, I was also looking at the Boox Note 2,Note pro and in other brands the Supernote A5, the upcoming A5x and the Remarkable 2. I like the Boox brand for all the things you can do with them. Lets see what the announcement by them on the 21st of Sept will entail. I look forward to it and its reviews by the community.

The Max Lumi will appeal to many who like a front light, but for me this is a negative. Primarily because it means there will need to be a gap between the screen and the display. I would be concerned about the effect on the writing experience: on my Nova Pro there is an illusion of "lag" between the stylus and the line drawn, but on closer inspection it is the gap between glass and the display. The Nova Pro has a front light.

It will also be interesting to see if they have to make the case stiffer to keep the display from flexing to keep the light evenly distributed. A stiffer case would probably mean a heavier device.

There's much cheaper options, but after trying a few I've been using this for some time and am happy with it:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's comfortable to hold, quiet, reliable and quick to connect. Works across all apps that allow standard next or volume down buttons (Includes NeoReader, Moonreader, Tachiyomi and most other decent reading apps). Makes reading very comfortable when the reader is in a stand.

99% of the time I'm just pressing the next (page) button. So I've stuck a felt adhesive foot on it so I can tell I'm over the right button without looking.

Single button bluetooth camera shutter buttons should be ideal just to turn to the next page, but unfortunately I couldn't get them to work.

If I had to get another, I might try the Boox Remote though. I didn't previously because it's big. But some of the newer Android readers don't even have a home button.
